One of the main reasons for removing is the uselessness of this “search tool.” If you have used it already, you know that its only function is to redirect you to Google Search. While this might seem fine to you at first, our research team warns that the hijacker could showcase advertisements and unreliable sponsored links when you browse Web, Images, Videos, and News. Sure, the interface of the results page might look just like a regular Google Search results page, but the results themselves could be modified. So, if you do not want to put yourself at risk, you should not interact with them. Another reason to get rid of the hijacker has to do with the collection of personal information. Whether or not you produce this information voluntarily, the people behind the hijacker are too untrustworthy to handle personal and non-personal data. If you agree with that, you probably want to remove as soon as possible.

Note that you can apply the preferred search provider, or you can use your favorite site. The choice is yours. Once you readjust your browser, you need to scan your operating system. If other infections are found, we urge you to eliminate them as soon as possible.
